John White Alexander  (7 octombrie 1856 - 1 iunie 1915), pictor simbolist american, ilustrator.
Si-a inceput cariera la New York, in 1875, lucrand pentru Harper's Weekly ca ilustrator si caricaturist. Pleaca in 1877 la Paris, decis sa urmeze cursuri de arta, apoi la Munchen. Se inscrie la Kunstakademie, unde il are ca profesor pe Gyuala Benczur. In 1878 se alatura unei colonii de artisti plastici americani, fondata in Bavaria de Frank Duveneck, de car eil va lega o durabila prietenie. In 1879 cei doi vor pleca in Italia, unde Alexander se imprieteneste cu pictorul James McNeill Whistler si cu scriitorul Henry James. Revine in 1881 la New York, isi reia postul de ilustrator pentru Harper's si este profesor de desen la Princeton. In scurt timp se va impune ca un portretist talentat si asaltat de comenzi.
Pana in 1893 era deja un nume cunoscut atat in America, dar si in Europa, iar in 1895 primeste o ampla comanda, de a realiza o serie de picturi murale cu titlul "Evolutia Cartii" pentru noua Biblioteca a Congresului din Washington. Dupa 1901 se implica tot mai mult in promovarea artelor plastice in America. Va continua sa realizeze numeroase picturi murale, dar si portrete.
Multe dintre portretele din perioada tarzie, in special cele infatisand femei, sunt mai curand studii psihologice decat simple redari ale asemanarii, iar tusele sale incep sa sugereze mai curand forme abstracte, iar culorile sunt aplicate in strat gros.
